    no one has ever been able to disprove any aspect of her story


    That isn't true - the Schackowsky part of the story was proved to be complete bullshit.

      that aspect discussed (not necessarily truthfully) on the intercept tapes?

      The influence of the [executive] has increased, is increasing, and ought to be diminished.

        The story she claims she heard has been disproved.  If she was a credible witness, she would have just said "well, that's what I heard."  Instead, she is trying to spin it because she isn't just a witness  - she's pushing her conspiracy.

      Hastert Turkey connection?

        In this case there are facts and Edmonds is the one who is lying.

        •  Even if what she is saying is not correct, (1+ / 0-)

          how do you know she is lying, and not just honestly mistaken?

          have read about this conspiracy on Bradblog.  If I have to choose who to believe, you or Brad Freidman, I'll choose Bradblog any day of the week.  I've never read a post of his that hasn't been checked and verified.  I am sorry that some Democrats have been implicated in this situation.  The difference is that hopefully we democrats are not IOIYAAD.

          Whoever said that the worst democrat is better than the best republican never met a Blue Dog Democrat.

            I got all of my information from Bradblog - I assume its all accurate.  It was on bradblog where I read Edmonds call for a gay witch hunt.  Democrats haven't been implicated, they have just been smeared by Edmonds.

              Shackowsky's Communications Director, Trevor Kincaid, denying the allegations.  Not Brad Freidman stating that what SE said is "Bullshit".  There is a big difference.  Look, I don't care about anyone's sexual orientation.  But if, and I do mean if, did abuse her position because she was being blackmailed, then that does have to be looked into.  You seem to be a very loyal supporter of the Representative.  I hope that the Rep. weathers this storm.  I will also agree to that this seems to be similiar to:

               " I don't know have any evidence that Glen Beck killed 2 people but if he didn't kill 2 people shouldn't he deny and show that he didn't kill anyone?
